This article discusses the aspect of learning activities in product development by leveraging a strategy for capturing and transferring tacit knowledge through the extensive use of reflective prototyping. With the overall aim of finding new ways for organizations to learn faster, the theory from knowledge transfer is converted into a framework for using reflective and affirmative prototypes. Rooted in this framework, an automotive industry in-situ experimental setup for studying learning, continuous evaluation and knowledge generation in product development is proposed and discussed.
